The Prince flew with Anna Malova, 27, as they travelled from Epstein’s private Caribbean island to the American mainland
Prince Andrew flew on Jeffrey Epstein’s private jet with a Russian model who was later imprisoned, it has been revealed.
The Duke of York took the billionaire’s Gulfstream plane now known as the “Lolita Express” with Anna Malova, 27, from Epstein’s private island in the Caribbean to the American mainland in 1999.
According to the Times, flight records submitted in court showed details of Prince Andrew’s journey.
Women who claimed to have been trafficked by Epstein obtained the logs which were made public during civil litigation against him.
The log reportedly states that the jet carried nine passengers including Epstein, Andrew, Malova and the British socialite Ghislaine Maxwell.
Malova reached the final of the Miss Universe beauty pageant in 1998, but later developed an apparent addiction to painkillers and was accused of forging prescriptions by prosecutors in New York in 2010.
In May 2011 she was jailed after repeatedly showing up late to be evaluated for a court-mandated drug programme.
A source close to Andrew said the prince had “no recollection” of being on the 1999 flight with Malova.
It comes just a day after the Duke released a statement saying it was a “mistake and an error” to visit Jeffrey Epstein’s home following the billionaire’s conviction for sex crimes.
Epstein took his own life in a Manhatten jail earlier this month while being held on sex-trafficking charges.
In an extraordinary personal letter issued via Buckingham Palace, the royal denied that he had any knowledge of Epstein’s wrongdoings prior to his convictions, and said he had visited him “probably no more than only once or twice a year” following his convictions.
He wrote: “It is apparent to me since the suicide of Mr Epstein that there has been an immense amount of media speculation about so much in his life.
“This is particularly the case in relation to my former association or friendship with Mr Epstein. Therefore I am eager to clarify the facts to avoid further speculation.”
